New Carrollton Interim Pedestrian Safety Improvements
Through a grant from the Metropolitan Washington Council of Governments Transportation/Land Use Connections (TLC) program, the Maryland-National Capital Park and Planning Commission (M-NCPPC) and Kittelson & Associates, Inc. are currently working on a study to improve walking conditions in the vicinity of the New Carrollton rail station. If you live, work or travel in the area, we ask that you share your observations of issues facing pedestrians in this area. Your unique experiences are critical to the success of the project. The comments we receive will help us to identify current deficiencies and develop appropriate solutions.
Please use the map below to tell us about your concerns. Examples include locations where it is difficult or dangerous to cross the street, roads where you feel uncomfortable walking, places where you have experienced “near misses”, or driveways where cars don’t always look for pedestrians. These are just examples to get you thinking, but we hope to hear about any challenges for pedestrians that you encounter. Our current study area is a ½ mile radius, or ten-minute walking distance, from the New Carrollton Metro Station. This is roughly the area bounded by the circle shown on the map. Please comment on only those issues which occur within the boundaries. Please be as specific as possible, as this will help us to better understand your concerns.
